“New management, friendly & good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

We arrived a few days after the new managers / owners had taken over. Rooms are older style, but were very clean and well presented. We booked late and had one of the upstairs rooms facing the road which had quite a lot of road noise during the day, but my parents stayed in one of the ground floor rooms towards the back of the motel and said that it was considerably quiter. Overall it was good value for money.

Room Tip: Try and get a ground floor room towards the back of the motel lot.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2010

Stayed for just less than a week, but left feeling my mental health was negatively affected simply from staying in this environment. On walking into the room on the first day, saw at least four pubic hairs in various places and was introduced to the sizeable population of cockroaches not long after. Felt generally dirty.

On more than one occasion a person tried to open the door to my room, but luckily I had the chain pulled. It does not feel like a safe hotel for a solo female traveller.

The depression really kicked in when I realised I could have stayed somewhere much nicer and safer for similar amount to what I paid. Avoid this hotel!!

We arrived at the motel and were given the keys to our room without a how are you. The room floor was dirty, full of hair and never been washed. The bunk beds for the kids were horrible foam things that were about 30 years old and we had to put pillows underneath them so my teenager son didn't feel the springs of the bed. We bought a mop to wash the floor and sprayed the room with coachroach spray and they were dropping like flies on the floor. Aircon barely works. Toilet was covered in filth around the floor, I had to clean the toilet before we could use it. TV stuck on a tall cupboard and hard to watch. Horrible stay, won't go back.
